Happy Thursday and welcome back to The Poetry Park!
For many of us, it feels like we’ve been stuck inside forever. As March moves into April, we’re ready to slip out of our winter cocoon to explore and enjoy all the outside world has to offer. To help us on our way, we’re going to bring a little bit of nature to our computers as we write to the Six-Pack Odes category.
Our wordle words come from the poem “There Will Come Soft Rains” by Sara Teasdale (which can be read it in its entirety by clicking here). Remember, Six-Pack Odes can be written in any style and length but must contain all six words listed below.
A Frog In Your Moat
With steady legs, the frog commands
his lily pad in search of lands
where robins sing throughout the night
and swallows dance in fire light.
He drifts across the murky pools
without the need to suffer fools.
His failure he will not concede
until a gator needs to feed.
